After royal prank tragedy, Aussie DJ show canceled
This story is absurd and doesn't add up.

First of all, radio DJ pranks are stupid, often offensive and gross, much of the time they're just juvenile.

I couldn't care less about the royals and am not defending these two from the radio because I read they've done some offensive and idiotic stuff in the past, but imo, they should not be held accountable for the nurse's death.

And here's why:

Are we really supposed to believe that the royal family had not implemented some form of security for communication between the palace and the hospital?

This is the hospital used by the royals and surely they must have either a direct line (think: Batman's special red phone line) or some type of code system in place that allows the hospital to verify their identity.

If they did not, that means that anyone could call the hospital and claim to be any member of the royal family, which is outrageous, given all the ultra-security measures in place to protect them in everything they do. So if they want privacy and protection, it is incumbent upon the royals and their security team to implement such; if they don't, then they have to take into account that some people will likely try to get information, such as the prying media (or stupid DJ prank calls).

The nurse who died only took the call and put it through to the attending nurse who actually verbally provided the information to the DJs.

So the nurse who died apparently did NOTHING other than transfer a call.

Is that something that would cause a sane person to commit suicide? Imo, NO.

The hospital says they did not reprimand her and her co-workers were supporting her; even the royals claim they made no formal complaint.

So what about this innocuous incident would drive the mother of two children to kill herself?

There must be more to the story.

Either she was already terribly mentally unstable or someone was involved in her death.

Has it even been determined for certain that it was suicide?

Has it been determined where her husband and children were at the time of her death?


The prank was stupid and should send a message to all radio stations that maybe it's time to knock it off. I don't know that these two should have been fired, but I do think if people are going to comment on this story, they should look more to the woman and consider that she may have been dealing with serious issues and/or demons and understand how utterly selfish it is for a MOTHER of young kids to kill herself over some silly nothing of an issue related to a job - especially given that no harm was done to anyone as a result of her transferring the call.

IF she did kill herself over that, then clearly the woman did not possess the sanity and rationale to understand how absolutely insignificant the whole thing was.

That said, it is important for people to take into account that even something silly, meaningless, harmless, etc. might be enough to drive an already very unstable person over the edge. Of course, there is no way that anyone can know that about everyone they deal with personally and professionally.


After royal prank tragedy, Aussie DJ show canceled

CANBERRA, Australia — Two Australian radio announcers who made a prank call to a British hospital treating Prince William's pregnant wife Kate broke a three-day silence Monday to speak of their distress at the apparent suicide of the nurse who took their call. Their show, "Hot 30," has been terminated, the station's parent company, Southern Cross Austereo (SCA), said in a statement Monday. SCA also announced a company-wide suspension of prank calls.

The 2DayFM Sydney-based announcers, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, said the tragedy had left them "shattered, gutted, heartbroken."

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20806706



In another article, was this:

Saldanha's brother Naveen has said that his sister has died of shame following the royal hospital hoax.

Naveen was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying that his devoutly Catholic sister was a "proper and righteous person".

She would have been "devastated" at unwittingly assisting a colleague in breaching medical confidentiality over the condition of Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.

"She would have felt much shame about the incident," Naveen said.



But then, it says:
Saldanha's sister-in-law Celine Barboza said the family could not understand what had caused the "strong" mother of two apparently to end her life.


Perhaps her culture had something to do with it, but apparently their definition of "shame" does not include intentionally leaving two children motherless.

Why do you all desperately want to think that doing something wrong does not have negative consequences?

It's the just think positive ignore negative religion.

Just another story to convince all the Department of Information should run all media, for the publics safety.

Also it's to distract your attention away, from what really is happening in the world. Expect more crap when WWIII kicks off, the market collapses and corporate fascism establishes itself firmly with its NWO solution!
Expect some great entertainment, boobs, sport and access to new legal highs! That should do it...

I certainly do not think that doing something wrong or bad does not or should not have negative consequences . . . but that is far too simplistic an "explanation" for this muddied story.

As for deception, that is a regular practice of the royals and American government and governments/authority/bankers/corporations around the globe.

Re: After royal prank tragedy, Aussie DJ show canceled
The nurse was a sweet middle aged woman who took the call at face value. She was doing a good job, while the DJ's were giggling and laughing and thinking what an amazing radio moment it was. They were probably the celebration of office, they went home and celebrated, meanwhile, someone was in pain. Someone was losing their job, had their identity splashed across the tabloids, probably had everyone listening to her being taken for a fool.

People have to reflect on this.

If only the DJ's had taken the time, afterwards to ring back and explain what they had done, at least she could have been prepared. If only the DJ's had never been put in that position to compromise themselves and act like stupid idiots on radio for 'entertainment', perhaps they would never have done it, perhaps they may have reflected on it, weighed it up as cruel. But it wasn't. It was seen as a great achievement. It's a lesson on thoughtlessness in actuality.

The DJ's are the victims, they are pressured to do this for their 'exclusive' job, they lie to themselves that it's worth the money, prestige, fame. It was a big fall for them to take, from a very high, public place, very young. I hope they put these two on suicide watch.

I've heard the recording of the nurse who gave out the info, but as far as I know, the nurse who died only answered and then transferred the call.

There was NOTHING humiliating about that for her. There was nothing wrong about her transferring the call.

The nurse who gave the info would actually be the one most in the spotlight, in terms of divulging private information - but she did not kill herself.

So clearly, the nurse who died was a victim of her culture which made her feel shame for no reason, she had serious mental problems at the time which made her take it too seriously, or she was a victim of a crime.

Again, I am NOT defending the DJs.

But I doubt they viewed the prank call as being "cruel" and to be honest, I don't consider it cruel at all. Stupid? Yes. Silly? Yes. Juvenile? Yes. But cruel? No.

I agree about them taking the fall for the whole thing when in actuality, the station should support them and should bring to attention some of the points I made in my original post - most notably that the royals MUST have had some kind of coded communication system in place. It is ABSURD to think they did not implement such a plan long ago. That's one main reason this story reeks.

Re: After royal prank tragedy, Aussie DJ show canceled
Host Mel Greig, doing a cheap imitation of the Queen’s voice, told Saldanha as she answered the 5:30 a.m. call Tuesday: “Oh, hello there, could I speak to Kate, please, my granddaughter.”

The harried nurse never questioned Greig’s identity, and dutifully passed her call to a nurse near Middleton’s room where Kate was recovering from pregnancy complications.

“Oh yes, just hold on, ma’am,” the misfortunate medic told the radio shock jocks.

“If this worked, it’s the easiest prank call we have ever made,” a second host, Michael Christian, exclaimed when he realized the call was being transferred.




So ANYONE could pick up the phone, call that hospital, and say they wanted to speak to "Kate, my granddaughter" . . . and the person answering transfers it to the attending nurse who does not ASK who's on the line, does not ASK whom exactly they want to speak with, does not check with any other staff to confirm whether or not she should give out info . . . yeah, right.

Here in America, where there's not that much protocol and pomp and circumstance, it would be highly unlikely that anyone could reach a politician or celebrity's nurse and be given private information . . . but it seems it would be IMPOSSIBLE to do so where the royals are concerned.

I referenced that perhaps she was dealing with "serious issues and/or demons" . . . not in the Exorcist sense of the word, but rather deeply psychological and emotional things that she had trouble handling.
